Why would I need to merge multiple Office 365 tenants?
Organizations are constantly in flux, either through native growth or perhaps when one organization acquires another. Merging two organizations is tough enough to plan and properly execute, but what about the technical infrastructure? With more than 155 million active business users in Microsoft Office 365, chances are that one or more companies being acquired are already using this service. Because each Office 365 tenant is uniquely separated from all others in the Microsoft Cloud there is no native way to "flip a switch" to bring two of them together. Since so many business services operate in Office 365, it is imperative that these cloud-based services. be properly executed and communicated to everyone involved. Technical enablement is important but just as important is proper communications to everyone impacted. Enabling Technologies consultants are skilled in both.
Merging Office 365 tenants can be complicated
There are tasks that administrators in Office 365 do each day and then there are tasks that very few will ever need to perform. Merging two or more Microsoft Office 36S organizations together can be a complicated process, email must continue to flow just right within, between, and externally of the impacted organizations. Instant messaging phone calls and rich collaboration must continue to be reliable and instant forms of communication. Access to files, websites, custom applications and other critical business functions must remain and come together smoothly. Compliance and legal holds on data can add another layer of complication. And perhaps most importantly, users must be made aware, trained and well prepared for the impending changes so they do not impact their job functions. These tasks require a proven methodical approach by a Microsoft Partner with experience
